“We have just returned from this outstanding trip and are struggling to come back down to earth. If you want to experience the huge variety of landscapes, wildlife, and exhilaration that Southern Africa has to offer, then this is the trip for you (if you are willing to put up with some long drives).”
Amazing adventure through fantastic scenery!
5 - Excellent
“I absolutely loved my trip from Cape Town to Victoria Falls. I went on the camping trip and I'm so glad I did, I had only camped in the UK before but I have already booked to go on the Gorillas and Masai Mara trip this year as I loved this one so much!”
An amazing overland adventure
4 - Very Good
“This trip lived up to our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The lodges and hotels were all very different and on the whole of a good standard. Beds were clean and comfortable. The journey is over 5000km in total, therefore includes long days, often over bumpy unmetalled roads. Included activities were varied and enjoyable. Some early starts but these were all for good reasons!”
Those on the group fligths will be taken to the campsite upon arrival. Those not on the group flight can join the group at anytime today.

*Victoria Falls Rest Camp or similar*
Today you have a free day and you can choose from scenic flights, white water rafting and game-viewing amongst others. Victoria Falls is a small town on the Zimbabwean side of the glorious Victoria Falls which you can visit (entrance own expense US$ 30).

*Victoria Falls Rest Camp or similar*
Today we transfer to Kasane in Botswana, home to huge numbers of elephant and hippo. Optional afternoon game drive. (150km, 1-2hrs plus border crossing 1-2hrs).

*Thebe River Camp Site or similar*
We have an early morning game drive in Chobe National Park and an afternoon boat ride on the Chobe River where it is possible to view huge herds of elephant coming down to drink as well as many other types of game. For bird lovers, the river provides a great home for them.

*Thebe River Camp Site or similar*
We drive through the Caprivi Strip to our camp by the Okavango River - the main watercourse supplying the Okavango Delta. (400km, 5-6hrs plus border crossing 1hr)

*Rainbow River Camp Site or similar*
We take a mokoro (traditional dug‐out canoe) ride from our camp on the Okavango River. Please note that in March/April, the river may be flooded and we may have to substitute our mokoros for a boat ride. The birdlife is prolific and, at certain times of the year, so is the game. Gliding through the waterways by mokoro is the ideal way to absorb the sheer peace and tranquillity of the place. We also have the option of a village tour to meet the local community.

*Rainbow River Camp Site or similar*
Today there's a long drive from the Okavango River to Etosha National Park, a huge area of mixed forest and grassland centred around a large salt pan. Etosha is home to a great variety and number of game, which is easy to find as the animals congregate at different times around the waterholes. There are waterholes next to the excellent campsites and it is not uncommon for us to spend all night watching a gala performance of animals: wildebeest, zebra, impala, springbok, kudu, elephant, giraffe, lion and even rhino are all common sights here. With a little patience you will be rewarded by one of the greatest game spectacles in Southern Africa. Etosha is also a good place for birds, with  plenty of waterbirds on the lakes, weaverbirds and hornbills in the trees. (650km, 8hrs)

*Etosha NWR Campsite or similar*
We have the next two days to really enjoy this fabulous park, starting with an early morning game drive. While in Etosha we move our camps (between Okaukuejo, Halali or Namutoni) but the itinerary is kept flexible depending on where the game is.

*Etosha NWR Campsite or similar*
Depart for Twyfelfontein where there are ancient and well-preserved rock-engravings. (300km, 4.5hrs)

*Aba Huab campsite*
We drive towards the Skeleton Coast and the Germanic town of Swakopmund. Overnight in Swakopmund. (400km, 6-7hrs)

*Dunedin Star Hotel*
Swakopmund has invented itself as Namibia's adventure sports capital, and we have a full day in Swakopmund to enjoy some of the optional adventure activities on offer; go on a dolphin cruise or township tour or take a flight over the desert! Alternatively, explore the German-style town and visit some of the excellent cake shops for which Swakopmund is famous.

*Dunedin Star Hotel or similar*
Drive via Walvis Bay to Sesriem, through the Namib Desert. This area is home to some of the driest and oldest deserts on earth and some of the finest desert scenery in Africa, if not the world, with towering jagged rock formations and incredible lunar landscapes. (300km, 4.5hrs)

*Sesriem Camp Site or similar*
We have a full day to enjoy the sand dunes of Sossusvlei and the Sesriem Canyon. Sossusvlei dunes are one of the great sights of Africa. We get up early to watch the morning light over the dunes and then have a go at climbing some of the highest dunes in the world. If you'd rather watch from below you'll enjoy seeing the changing colours on the towering dunes lower down as the sun rises. If we're lucky we may see gemsbok, ostrich or even black‐backed jackals among the dunes, an irresistibly photogenic scene! In the afternoon we visit Sesriem Canyon.

*Sesriem Camp Site or similar*
We'll leave early this morning to drive to the Fish River Canyon. (500km, 8.5‐9hrs)

*Canyon Roadhouse Camp similar*
Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon on earth. The views along the canyon rim are spectacular – we take a short walk around the rim before continuing our journey to Orange River (180kms, 2.5‐3hrs plus border crossing 1hr). This afternoon we should be able to have acanoe trip on the Orange River.

*Bushwacked or similar*
Today we head to our final stop before reaching Cape Town as we travel to the fertile Olifants River Valley, giving us a glimpse into the agricultural lifestyle of the Western Cape. (about 7hrs drive)

*Highlanders Camp Site*
We spend the morning relaxing at Olifants River Valley. In the afternoon we travel through farmlands of citrus, maize, cattle and sheep before arriving at our destination, Cape Town. (300km, 4.5‐5.5hrs)

*Sweetest Guesthouse or similar*
Activities available in Cape Town on days 19 and 20 are interchangeable depending on the weather, as we time the optional excursion up Table Mountain for a clear day. Table Mountain is often the first image that springs to mind whenever one thinks of Cape Town. We will visit the mountain by cable car (optional) for views across the city. There is also time to drive via the spectacular Chapman's Peak to Houtbay, and visit Cape Point to see the resident penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

*Sweetest Guesthouse or similar*
The area surrounding Cape Town is famous for its wine and we will get a chance to sample some of the local produce during a visit to a wine farm. Those on the group flights will be transferred to the airport this afternoon and other clients are free to make their own arrangements.
